This project has the overall goal of building a strong and sustainable international partnership between Brazil, South Africa and Germany, thus enabling the creation and provision of higher education teaching material to introduce students to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and raise awareness about how they can have an impact in reaching the Agenda 2030. With the perspective and expertise from two excellent and renowned universities from the global South, their learnings, regional challenges and best practices will also become available to students from Germany and other countries in both the South and global North, hence maximizing its impacts. By not only focusing on creating materials for nine SDGs, but also using considerable intellectual input and time to translate and contextualize the materials into the local languages and regional specificities, the materials generated by this project will help to reach more, especially undergraduate students. This, in turn, will promote local implementation of the SDGs, and can have an upscaling affect.
